Real Estate Investing Tips

Friday, October 16, 2009

The following collection of real estate investment tips may be some things that you already know. Nothing. There will be some you’ve never heard before, too, and in each case, sometimes we need to be reminded of what we know.

1. Finding an agent with the right experience. When selling real estate, around and see what else is sold in the same area. Look particularly at the agent’s name signs. Agent whose name appears the most in your neighborhood will likely best know how to price and market your property. You can also do this by looking through real estate guide to find people who can be active agents in your area, or the type of your property.

2. Making low offers correctly. When making a low bid that could offend a seller, let him know that it was not personal, that is just what you need to make a deal work for you. You can include a list of concerns or things that you need to fix, to justify a lower price. If you have a choice in a situation like this, maybe it’s better to let the agency without your bids now. This can be difficult for sellers to hear you say something bad about the property directly. List of concerns is less personal, and tends to offend him – which makes it more likely that he will seriously consider your bid.

3. Search for “extra” opportunity. When flipping a house, you may usually find fixer uppers that can only be “put in a good shape” and sold for a decent profit. But if there is “extra” opportunities other investors do not see, you can create more. These are things like a full basement that can be converted into living space, or attic space that can be made into a bedroom or office, or many additional that can be separated and sold without reducing the value of the house much.

4. What to do when the rental price will not generate cash flow. People often buy a rental house, duplex, and even four-plexes to house, thinking they are “investments” as well. They pay according to their personal values, so that these properties can far exceed the price at which they will generate cash flow. Apartment building, on the other hand, according to the price of one thing more than another: net income. Lessons? When you can not create cash flow with a small rented, thinking bigger.

5. How to find motivated sellers. Real estate investors will often talk about the importance of “motivated seller,” but how did you find them? When searching for newspaper classified ads, pay attention to the words. “Need to sell,” “Must sell,” and “Do look at all offers,” is the usual indicators, but you can see the ads as well rent. “Must have a good job,” may indicate a tired landlord tenant and ready for sale. Search county records out-of-state owner is another way.

6. Do not rely on appreciation. If you are planning to increase the value of real estate as the main way to make profit, you are speculating, not investing. Drops in the values recently in many areas show flaw in this strategy, but also keep in mind that the transaction costs can reach 10% of the sales price, so you should have a big increase in value just to break even. Enjoy the appreciation as a bonus, but buy based on cash flows, plans to increase the value (fix and flip), or other well-thought-out plan for profit. This is probably the most important real estate investment tips.

Good post and commentary. I think Realtors internet marketing is great but people
are getting way to caught up with it and think that if you
are great at blogging and marketing…the $$ just rolls in.
